Inaugural Edition April 8, 2016

Welcome to the inaugural edition of Inclusion Insights, a regular publication of LeadingAge North Carolina highlighting trends, practices, and news related to inclusion and diversity issues in aging services. We welcome your feedback, questions, and story ideas!

Diversity Seminar

Many individuals, groups, and institutions are challenged with appreciating and leveraging difference. Understanding differences and appreciating inclusiveness allows an organization to be far more customer intimate - which is the key to providing good customer service and, in turn, to business success.

We’ve listened to you and designed a pre-conference diversity seminar that will provide attendees with the necessary tools to develop an inclusion roadmap for their community.

Hector McEachern

You won’t want to miss this one-of-a-kind learning opportunity, in large part because we’ve been able to bring Hector McEachern’s inestimable talents to the session. During his 30-year human resources management career with Wachovia Corporation, McEachern established the corporation’s Office of Diversity through which he steered a comprehensive cultural assessment of the organization’s workforce and designed and implemented a company-wide cultural awareness and diversity initiative. Mr. McEachern held responsibilities as manager of corporate human resources, chief diversity officer, and, most recently, executive vice president and human resources business partner director. In the latter position, he provided executive oversight of the corporation’s operating committee for human resources and other business lines, including leadership for 12 HR officers and 240 HR professionals. Not content to put all that experience on the shelf when he retired in 2009, McEachern founded The McEachern Group and now provides leadership as its president. The firm provides guidance on human capital strategies, executive coaching and diversity leadership, organizational change through mergers and acquisitions, and organizational consulting.

Join us on May 10th at 1:00pm for this amazing pre-conference kickoff to our 60th anniversary celebration in Myrtle Beach. For more information – and to register – click here.

Affinity Group Communities

Food for thought: a recent article in TheNew York Times highlighted a developing type of housing option called "affinity group communities.” In part the concept is borrowed from the corporate sector that has often organized affinity groups in organizations to address the needs of like individuals with common interests.

Senior Living Poised to Attract More Diverse Residents

Race, age and income all play a significant role in who is looking at senior housing, but
recent survey findings suggest a possible inflection point, as minorities express more interest in senior living for themselves than for their parents.
